Joe Helbing captained Howlett's tavern for 13 years before deciding to explore a new career path, only to discover he missed the clink of beer glasses and the chatter of happy guests. Having reaffirmed his passion for the restaurant biz, Joe reopened his restaurant, where he continues to serve the original Howlett's memorable menu of steak-house favorites. Deep in the kitchen, chefs grill a variety of hand-cut steaks, ribs, and fresh seafood dishes. To craft their signature crab cakes, they season fresh lump crab with a savory rémoulade. Come lunchtime, they turn their attention to making thick paninis and hearty burgers and shaking their fists at the relentless midday sun. Guests linger over last sips of cocktails and final bites of housemade pecan pie at tables that speckle the spacious dining room.

At Don Pepe Mexican Restaurant, an expansive menu of fajitas, burritos, and steaks illustrates the breadth and depth of the Mexican culinary tradition. Nachos in 10 varieties greet diners with juicy morsels of chicken or beef and a crunch that could wake a jet-lagged Rip Van Winkle. Enchiladas team up with tacos or tamales to form hearty combos, or go solo to showcase classic Mexican ingredients such as poblano peppers and green tomatillos. Quesadillas can be stuffed with vegetarian-friendly fillings, such as mushrooms, or meaty delights, such as house-made chorizo. To round out meals, xangos come with a dusting of cinnamon sugar that impresses sweet teeth as much as a coating of edible diamonds.
